"The 2010 Montrose is insanely beautiful."
2010 Château Montrose St. Estèphe

Posted by Ian McFadden

Montrose is known for aging beautifully and the 2010 has the signs of a monumental vintage for the ages.  I'm happy to offer the wine at very sharp pricing.

The 2010 Bordeaux vintage is one of my favorites of the past couple of decades. It's a year that Montrose shined.

The vintage amazingly combines power and verve. There's the concentration and suave texture of a riper vintage with the finesse of a cooler one. The total package is truly profound.

Here, all of the Montrose hallmarks are on bold display. There's great power and depth with dark fruits, cigar box, spice, and earth. You even get the mineral-driven sternness that we love.

In 2010, Montrose is simply epic. I like how the wine announces its aristocratic structure with both boldness and grace. This is backed by a glorious acid backbone. 

For me, Montrose sums up so much of what makes Bordeaux one of the world's great wines. There's nothing showy about it. What it offers is incredible longevity, subtle complexity, and class. I'm pleased to offer this.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2010 Montrose is insanely beautiful. A vivid, eternal wine, the 2010 dazzles right out of the gate with its explosive energy. Soaring floral and mineral notes are immediately captivating on the bouquet. All that carries through to the palate, where the wine is dense and expansive. Readers lucky enough to own it should be thrilled. This really benefits from aeration. What a wine!"
